One of the most impactful scenes in "Concussion" is a brief and wordless one – just a few seconds of a high school football team going through its drills.One day, a beloved former Steeler ends up on Omalu's table.He co-authors an article in a medical journal outlining his findings that Webster and others like him suffer from CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). He thinks the NFL will be glad to know, so it can better help its athletes.Wecht tries to explain this to an oblivious Omalu, who doesn't watch football – or even turn on the TV.(Duerson's family, incidentally, has publicly disputed how Duerson is portrayed in the film). He turns into a crucial ally of Omalu's.
